Resting Brunch Face


In my world, we can easily run a tab upwards of $50 and more on brunch. Which, if you really think about it, is kinda stupid. We pay $15 for an avocado toast that anyone could make in their own kitchen. But, brunch isn’t about how much we spend on dishes and bottomless mimosas. It’s about catching up, having our photos taken, and talking shit while enjoying a beautiful spread laid out in front of us.

To my friends and I, brunch is the one place to leave someone out and make it known. Not being extended an invite to brunch is like being ostracized because your friends are obviously mad at you.

Keep scrolling to get my list of favorite places to brunch in Houston.

Tiny Boxwoods

Come for the beautiful platters, boards, and plates. This is this place to be if you want to sit outside with a gorgeous backdrop while you eat and gossip.

Tiny’s No.5

Tiny’s No.5 is the younger sister to Boxwoods, and she’s quaint with her beauty lying in the interior. A huge plus to brunching at No.5? Access to Tiny’s Milk and Cookies—warm chocolate chip cookies, house-made ice cream or both.

The General Public

I live for the food at General Public in City Centre. It’s American b-fast with a dash of extra for that special twist. And, the inside has so much natural light for the best photos.

The Dunlavy

Probably the most extra brunch spot on this list. The extravagant chandeliers should have been a dead giveaway. With all glass-windowed walls, the lighting in here is superb.


After their remodel, I’m so glad they retained the same brunch menu. Classic American food and some of the best Bellinis.
